Buddy “played” outside for the first time yesterday.  A few minutes on the front porch while I tried to de-winter our front flower bed.  Every time I saw a worm, I shrieked, as always, not because I am afraid of them, but because they seem to squirm out at me very quickly.  Very unwormlike.

Here are a few pictures of my favorite baby.  Ignore the dead leaves in some shots.
